Nursing at University of Miami Hospital

At University of Miami Hospital, nurses have wide-ranging opportunities to advance in their field, and to positively impact the hospital’s administration, clinical care, and research. In fact, CEO David Zambrana and many others in leadership positions at the hospital began their careers in nursing.
